Features Samir Mondal's Water-coloured Canvases this month features the canvases of Samir Mondal — an artist responsible for the revival of watercolours, and introducing structural quality to the medium, giving it the same status as that of oil paints.
July 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Samir Mondal, often referred to as the 'Watercolour man', surfaces as an artist whose contribution to the field of art is tremendous. Collaborating with the internationally famed artist, will feature Mondal's art-work, starting July 1, uptill July 31, 2011.

Not being too keen just to paint the cliched landscapes with watercolours, Samir Mondal has taken the medium to newer heights. “40 years back when I started painting, I realized that watercolours were not getting their deserved status; they were considered child's play. Watercolours start breaking on paper as they are foggy and weightless. I keenly noticed the manner of oil-painting, observing its structural quality, richness and heaviness. In a struggle to introduce these elements in watercolour, I have tried to paint my canvases using watercolours by adding textures and structural features as if they are oils,” explains Mondal.

The month long display of the artists work at will feature human faces and flowers, in crisp, happy palettes. Speaking on the occasion, Mondal shares, “ is just the same click at every place. It does not divide us by any boundaries.”

Mondal has widely exhibited and has collaborated with eminent poet and media person Pritish Nandy on various projects. He has created the Mulla Naseeruddin series for The Illustrated Weekly and his full page portraits of film stars and other prominent personalities in The Sunday Observer have won him accolades. Also, his art-work, specially  painted for the movie 'Taare Zameen Par' has gained much appreciation. “We are more than proud to get such a versatile artist on board with us,” says Anuja Lath, Co-Founder and CEO,
